Packers trade CB Randall for Browns QB Deshone Kizer

Multiple sources are reporting that the Green Bay Packers are trading cornerback Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns for second year quarterback DeShone Kizer. In addition to the player transaction, the teams have swapped their picks in the fourth and fifth rounds allowing Green Bay to move up in both. Randall urged coaches to hold players more accountable for their mistakes.

McCarthy wasn't almost as supportive when he was asked about the mercurial Randall in his end-of-season press conference after Randall publicly criticized ex-defensive coordinator Dom Capers and he coaching staff at the end of a season in which Randall himself had his own issues.

"You're talking about words of frustration", McCarthy remarked. "He needs to focus on himself".

Randall had 47 tackles, four interceptions including one returned for a touchdown, and nine passes defensed last season for Green Bay. In the deal, the Packers receive former Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer.

The Browns are trading their third-round pick, No. 65 overall, to the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. His first game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers was not the debut he was hoping for. But many of his interceptions caroms or were thrown directly to him by opposing quarterbacks. He was benched after five games, then named starter once again.

Kizer, who went 0-15 as a starter and led the National Football League with 22 interceptions during a straining rookie season, will compete for Green Bay's backup job behind star Aaron Rodgers.

Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley ranked 30th in the league. His performance down the stretch definitely played a part in the Packers seeking other options.

While Hundley enters a contract year and may not be a lock to return altogether, Kizer gets the chance to learn under Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy.

The Packers went 3-6 with Hundley at the helm, something the fan base is not used to nor comfortable with.

Randall had 10 interceptions in his first threes season in Green Bay. Providing Rodgers remains healthy, it will be years before Kizer is expected to start in Green Bay.
